Valentine’s Day can be a good time to promote yearbook specials

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Love is in the air everywhere on Valentine’s Day, and today of all days is when the perfect gift idea can be priceless.

This month, and this day, can be the perfect time to run special promotions of the yearbook.

One Walsworth school recently let us know about just such a promotion they have been doing. Key Largo School in Key Largo, Fla., announced to their students that they want each of the classes in their school to reach 100% in purchasing the yearbook.

To inspire that, during the month of February the first Key Largo class to reach 100% will get a pizza party compliments of the yearbook staff.

What February, or Valentine’s Day-themed, yearbook promotions might work at your school?
